Count Your Blessings Monday!!

Here is an opportunity for all of us to give thanks unto the Lord for a blessing in our lives. If you would like to take part great. If not that is OK too. If you would like to share your blessing, just leave it in the comments. If you want to use the picture above and list a blessing on your own site, then leave a URL to your site in the comments. There is no pressure here. I just know that I am incredibly blessed and I would like to share that and give thanks to Him who all blessing come from. This is a way that we can encourage one another. I know that I am often encouraged when someone shares a blessing with me. I think that many times we forget that it is a blessing to be able to breath, to get out of bed, to hold a baby... Share your blessings with us. We can share so many other things.... special gifts, recipes, let's take the time to share how God has blessed us!!

Today, I am thanking God for the rain he sent us this weekend and for his protection.

We got some really good rain this weekend and we are so grateful for it. It rained more than once and for at least one of the rains, it came down in buckets full. Our ground just soaked it all up.

We went to my Dad and Alice's for a late lunch on Saturday. Alice really out did herself. The table was beautiful and the food was really delicious. We left to come home. We were sitting at a stop sign waiting for traffic to clear on a state route with a speed limit of 55. A car was coming from our right heading south and another car was coming the other way. The girl in this car was paying more attention to Michael and what he was going to do. She turned right in front of the other car. We thought for sure our car was going to be hit by both of them, but they bounced the other way. All 3 people had to be transported. I am so grateful for God's protection.

I'm so glad you avoided the accident and pray that those injured recover quickly.

Today I am thankful that although it is very painful, my husband and I finally did what we knew God wanted us to do and began looking for a new church home.

Wow, sounds like a close call! I'm so glad they didn't hit you! I hope all involved are ok.

I am thankful today for the cool weather! It is lovely outside--just gorgeous!

I am thankful for your blog and also that my 4mo. old nephew came through surgery wonderfully today.

That was such a blessing that you did not get hit by both of them. I pray that everyone will be O.K. God bless, Rose

What a scary thing. Were you able to help the ones involved until emergency personnel arrived?
